Following my grilled teriyaki salmon post a few weeks ago, I had a number of readers ask me to share some tips on how to grill chicken.
Detailed here are three of my favorite go-to grilled chicken recipes:
Grilled Teriyaki Chicken
Citrus Grilled Chicken
Grilled Chicken Stuffed with Goat Cheese and Roasted Red Peppers
Any of these meals are perfect for summer entertaining or dining al fresco!
1. Grilled Teriyaki Chicken, Step-by-Step:
–Prepare chicken breasts by rinsing and patting dry with a paper towel.
–Flatten chicken with meat tenderizing tool and pierce several times with a fork. Flattening the chicken results in more even cooking and a tender taste. Piercing it with a fork before marinating results in more flavor.
–Pour marinade into shallow glass pan and place chicken breasts one at a time in the pan, using a silicone brush to smother the chicken with your marinade.
–Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
–Heat grill to ~400.
–Cook chicken on one side for ~5-7 minutes, flip and cook on remaining side for 3-5 minutes, depending on how well-done you like your chicken.
–Serve with steamed broccoli and brown rice, or pick your favorite sides!
